Sorry guys I’m going have to take a break on the 1/87 for a good while its really messing with my hands and eyes. Anyway back to the bench. I got this from Dave (AITM) last year and I’ve decided to start it.I painted the Cab Allis Chamlers Orange. I plan on this pulling a dump trailer. The Engine will not be seen but I painted it close to Mack gray as I could. Have to get a few more parts to add and I got some built also tonight. I’m going to make some new tank brackets. I’m using the DM frame to get the vintage parts to build this and using parts from other kits. Enjoy the pics

Wheels are painted and I fixed the suspension where it doesn’t have the “Spread Axle” look

Really like the progress on this one!!!!   And the "correction" on the spread of the rear-ends really looks much better!!!

I was wondering about the rear axles.  I've always had a thing against the spread axle look.  Glad to see you made the change!

Great work, love the B and R model Macks! They made them in my neck of the woods, so they were every where when I was a kid. Now not so much, lol!
